Exterior Plastic

Well, the trucks bumper step and other black trim is faded as hell. Any good suggestions on getting it nice and black again? Used Aerospace303 and it didnt last a week but it did look good when it was on.

Go to your local paint shop and buy black trim paint in a can. Maybe Nick can tell you how to get it back to the correct color, but thats about the only way I know of

I've heard the Mr. Clean magic erasers actually work good for that too, just not sure why, or how.

A little goes a long ways...it needs to be rubbed in, and buff off the extra. I follow up the next day with a 2nd coat.

Now, after some days of rain and a few washes...looks great. I will get a picture in a bit

Ok...you can see the difference in color behind the handle and the handle itself. Its a bit dirty, but the handles were that faded before.
